In certain situations, periodontal treatments like scaling and root planing alone may not be sufficient to deal with periodontal disease, especially in patients who had more severe disease at the outset. For example, if the pockets around your teeth are too deep to clean adequately by professional means and proper home care. These patients may require further treatment in the form of surgical periodontal therapy.
Modern surgical treatments are generally minimally invasive. There are a variety of surgical techniques used in the management of severe periodontitis, each having their specific indication.
